So many scams

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

I just got a $50 Amazon Credit. Actually I don't think so. It seems more and more I am getting something that is really nothing, or worse. It seems like at least twice a week I get or win something that is some kind of scam. How do I know I'm not just lucky? I know because if I have to provide personal data I suspect someone is looking to get, rather than give something to me. Even opting out of some sites is difficult and often winds up in more unwanted email. Wecome to the age of technology. Calgon.....take me away.

I heard something in the news tognight about a huge amazon scam where their info had been comprimised through those emails and people had ordered bunches of computers, then gone on line to redirect delievery asking for packages that contained computers to be held at a UPS facility and then picked up with fake drivers licenses.

On my Cox account it is overwhelming. On Gmail with using Unroll.me it isn't an issue.
